The Spirit of the White Stag by R.J. Shore

Author's Description:
When worlds collide, they explode, but when ideologies collide, they implode. Colin and Brianna were two such diametrically opposed forces -- and BethAnn was caught in the middle. She was saved by something that no one would ever guess. Maybe not even you?. Not much sex, and only one explicit scene, but you'll have to find it yourself. Not my usual style, although it proved to be a challenge to keep it down to one scene.

This is the first story I've read by this author. It's about a young man who lives by himself in a mountain cabin and who is confronted by two would-be PETA-like activist women. I'll not give away the rest of the story.

This is a medium-length romance. If you're of the PETA or ELF mindset, you won't like the messages in this story. And while there is sex in the story, it's not a stroke story, so you should look elsewhere if that's what you want. There's also no secret agents, military, magic, nor giant breasts; again, if that's what you seek, seek another story.

The plot is fairly straightforward and well-constructed with no obvious holes. The characters are generally realistic, and the story itself is believable.

Technically the story needs some work; it would benefit from a good edit for spelling/punctuation/etc. It's not so bad as to render it unreadable, but the reading would go smoother if it were cleaned up a bit.

The author says that this isn't his/her usual style; I've not read any other of the author's stories, so I can't attest to that, but I liked this one enough that I've added a number of his/her stories to my reading queue.

I recommend this one.
